Charles H. Gabriel (1856–1932)


Wear a smile for Je­sus,
As you pass along,
Cheer this world of sor­row
With a hap­py song;
If a cloud should low­er,
Hiding all the blue,
Smiles will rift the gloom and
Let the sun­shine thro’.


Smiling, smil­ing, hap­py ev’ry day;
Smiling, smil­ing, up the nar­row way;
On the Mount of Pis­gah
Some day we shall stand,
And with smile of tri­umph
View the pro­mised land.

Wear a smile for Je­sus,
Speak a word of cheer;
Many hearts are sigh­ing
’Neath their bur­dens here;
Like the spark­ling dew­drops
On the droop­ing flow’rs,
Smiles will cheer and bright­en
E’en the dark­est hours.


Wear a smile for Je­sus—
Do not stop to weep;
Tho’ some dis­ap­poin­tment
O’er your path­way creep,
Smiles will light­en la­bor,
Soothe and ban­ish care;
Scatter free­ly, then, your
Brightest ev­ery­where.
